Pet portraits

I spent some time doing this one as this dog is really special to me! My boy Bo is four now and such a character! No doubt you too have an animal that is special to you. There can be such joy to be found in a good relationship with a pet, don’t you think?

Bo is painted in oils on a 40 x 40 cm canvas. He’s not for sale, but I can make you a picture of your own pet if given a clear photo!

Lion King

I was gifted some new oil paint – orange yellow and sap green – and a lot of it! I am very grateful for the kindness of that generous person and thought I would use these colours as a basis for this picture. Initially I did think that it was unlikely it would work out very well with such diverse colours but I have been pleasantly surprised how the different mixes of the colours made totally different tones. Enough said, this is the end result, and I do hope you like it!

Black Canvas

Black canvasses are new to me and I am still very much experimenting with them. Initially I found them really inspiring but over time I am thinking maybe they are not as great an idea as I thought! I shall still use them, I think, if I can get hold of them again!

These two pictures are both on 40 x 40 cm canvas and painted in oils. Let me know what you think!
